gnutls_x509_crl_verify: API function


gnutls_x509_crl_verify - API function


#include <gnutls/x509.h>

int gnutls_x509_crl_verify(gnutls_x509_crl_t crl, const gnutls_x509_crt_t * trusted_cas, int tcas_size, unsigned int flags, unsigned int * verify);


gnutls_x509_crl_t crl
is the crl to be verified
const gnutls_x509_crt_t * trusted_cas
is a certificate list that is considered to be trusted one
int tcas_size
holds the number of CA certificates in CA_list
unsigned int flags
Flags that may be used to change the verification algorithm. Use OR of the gnutls_certificate_verify_flags enumerations.
unsigned int * verify
will hold the crl verification output.


This function will try to verify the given crl and return its verification status. See gnutls_x509_crt_list_verify() for a detailed description of return values. Note that since GnuTLS 3.1.4 this function includes the time checks.

Note that value in verify is set only when the return value of this function is success (i.e, failure to trust a CRL a certificate does not imply a negative return value).


On success, GNUTLS_E_SUCCESS (0) is returned, otherwise a negative error value.
